A Day For Daisies - New Releases AND a New Challenge!

Oh Fabulous Friday!  A Day For Daisies releases *new* images today AND it's the start of a *new* challenge!  My first card showcases one of Tammy's amazing mermaid images, Mermaid Child One.  A Day For Daisies mermaid images are my personal favorites.  I colored him with copics and the foam on the tide is Aleene's glitter snow.  I lightly brushed some Mudd Puddles sand paste here and there also.  The card is a Bazzill A2 and the frame is K&Company Life's Journey blue green damask printed paper and cut with Nesties Labels 10.
Now it's time for details and inspiration for the A Day for Daisies Challenge #7!  The theme is "It's All In the Wrapping."  Can you guess what you need to do?  Yes that's right - you need to use wrapping paper in your card design!  You know that package that's wrapped so perfectly, you can hardly imagine what's inside!? Take as much care in making your card as you would in executing a flawless wrap.  These cards will be so pretty it won’t matter what’s inside.  It’s all in the wrapping!  I chose to use Christmas wrapping paper but you can use any wrapping you choose.  I thought that an explosion box (tutorial from Splitcoaststampers here) was the perfect card design for this challenge!   I used red foil wrapping paper --on sale on JoAnn's for 99 cents -- and covered the outside of the "box."  Then, using my mini-Bowdabra and sheer gold ribbon, made a bow.  Then, by resizing ADFD digi, "Dressed up for Christmas," I created the To/From tag.  See, this is one of the huge benefits of working with digis - they can be resized to accommodate the project!   So now, here's the fun part  When you lift the lid, the walls of the box fall open and reveals another amazing A Day for Daisies digi, "A Special Gift!"  The star is mounted on  piece of acetate so it stays suspended over Mary & Baby.

  1. Oh what a beautiful project, Lisa! Truly inspirational! xxD

  2. Ooh....look at all these goodies! Must say I had to do a double take and wondered if that was a young mermaid female or male! LOL!

  3. LISA! That piece of acetate holding the star over Mary & Jesus was such an awesome idea! The tag on your box and your mermaid card look wonderful too!
